Why Use an Amalgam Separator?

The disposal of wastes into water systems is known as ‘waste water discharge’, and is subject to controls that are set by the UK’s 12 water and sewerage undertakers.

Healthcare organisations in particular often requires amalgam separation services. This is because they conduct procedures which can result in the discharge of various items and substances into sewerage systems.
While most waste water from dental practices is already subject to a number of regulations, this guidance has a particular impact on ‘dirty sinks’ in practices. It aims is to reduce the amount of amalgam, and subsequently mercury, reaching the sewerage system.

If you are using your dirty sink for cleaning procedures that involved mercury or amalgam contaminated equipment an amalgam separator should be fitted. Talk with an Initial expert to meet amalgam waste compliance.
